Expertise: Starting with work at the Kamehameha Schools in the early 1970's, Toni Falbo has continued to identify strategies to assist at-risk Latinx students in graduating high school, and the promotion of parental and school strategies to assist students making the transition from middle to high school. Falbo has also conducted research about school choice, and the benefits of Mayan education for adolescents in Guatemala. Falbo is a leading expert on only children, having conducted empirical research on their outcomes compared to those of other birth orders and sibship sizes for more than 40 years. Falbo has been engaged in collecting data about only children as schoolchildren or college students in China, and has conducted meta-analyses of only-child research published in the U.S. and China. Currently, Falbo is using Add Health to investigate sibling effects on obesity in adolescents and emerging adults.

Expertise: My students and I are currently pursuing a variety of questions in several areas of plant population biology and plant ecology. These areas include (1) the dynamics and regulation of plant populations; (2) competitive and facilitative interactions between plants and their consequences for community structure and for species distributions across their landscape; (3) the effects of herbivory and of fire on plant population dynamics, plant-plant interactions, community structure, and landscape-scale distributions. We address these topics using a variety of plant species (grasses, forbs, woody plants) and communities, including central Texas savannas and woodlands. Field, greenhouse, and garden experiments, descriptive field studies, and theoretical models are among the techniques we have used. A number of our current projects have conservation applications, including the preservation of an endangered annual forb and the management of woodland preserves. Please see our research webpages for more information.

Expertise: My research program explores the relationship between polymer structure, processing and properties. More specifically, we study the effect of polymer structure on the solubility, diffusivity, and permeability of small molecules in polymers and polymer-based materials. These fundamental studies bear directly upon membranes for liquid, gas, and vapor separations; controlled drug delivery devices and techniques; barrier plastics for food and specialty packaging; monomer and solvent removal from formed polymers; and physical aging of glassy polymeric materials and membranes.
